A well-deserved Twitter beatdown for Mr. Trudeau.
The hashtag #TrudeauEulogies is trending on Twitter, mocking Canadian PM Justin Trudeau’s praising of Fidel Castro following the Cuban dictator’s death.
Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau spoke about Castro fondly, saying, “It is with deep sorrow that I learned today of the death of Cuba’s longest serving President. Fidel Castro was a larger than life leader who served his people for almost half a century. A legendary revolutionary and orator, Mr. Castro made significant improvements to the education and healthcare of his island nation.”
Many were upset at Trudeau’s failure to mention that Castro was a dictator who forced gay people into internment camps, killed his political opposition, and was a socialist dictator who’s death has caused Cubans who fled his brutal regime to celebrate. Below are a few tweets in the currently trending hashtag #TrudeauEulogies that satirise Trudeau’s ignoring of the atrocities committed by tyrants like Castro.
